But does he hold you in the night
Like I held you in the night
With his body laying next to yours
Like a second skin?
And does he kiss away your tears
As if they were his own
To leave you feeling pure and whole
Like I tried to do?
And when the darkness falls so hard
Is the hand you reach for mine
Although the only one you find
Belongs to him not I?
And does he hold you in the night
Like I did once before
And does he tell you all the things
I used to say to you?
And does he mean the world to you
Like you still do to me
With silent words that speak so loud
Just like a second skin?
